Crocs and animals good. Guides can’t be bothered
Sep 2021 • Family
We paid the extra $50 for croc cruise. Our guide Jess was less than enthusiastic to tell us about the crocs, like she couldn’t be bothered being there. She had a head set , and didn’t use it. Couldn’t hear but she was saying Very disappointing

If you are interested in Crocs and Aust animals you can visit
Sep 2021
Very expensive, but if you have never seen croc. Breeding Pens and lots of baby crocs or in the wild then worth a visit. The zoo part of the place was interesting and you were generally able to see the animals. Ok to wander around, although staff at entry not particularly friendlyor helpful.

The boat trip is a must! The closest opportunity in Darwin to see these animals in their natural habitats! Some areas are a little tired and covid has obviously had some impact, yet don't be discouraged. It is still well worthwhile.

Crocs galore
Aug 2021 • Couples
Well worth the visit
So much to see and do
Lots of crocs
Lots of huge Crocs
We did the boat cruise and it was well worth it to be in amongst some big jumping crocs
Luke the tour guide did an awesome job
These crocodiles get up very close
So keep your arms inside the boat
If you don’t have time to get to Adelaide river to see jumping crocs this is the place to go
There are also many other animals for the kids to see not just the crocs
5 star attraction
A must see

There are two "croc parks" to pick from in Darwin, and this is one is magnificent. We not only got to see Crocs up close, but also went on the boat tour - worth it! PLUS this place has additional animals - monkeys, dingoes, buffalo, etc., etc.

Never Smile At A Crocodile!
Jun 2021 • Couples
This is an excellent well set out park and the animals are relaxed and well cared for. Having worked with primates and spent time with Dr Birute Galdikas (Orangutans), I am extremely fussy with the primates well being and as a member of OFI and AOP, I can honestly say that the enclosures for the animals were excellent. Entry is $40 Adults, $30 Seniors and $20 Children. What guests must realise that to take care of these animals it costs a lot of money and the maintenance of the enclosures, let alone the staff and maintenance of the property. You can see there has been no expense spared to offer a safe environment for both the guests and the animals. We experienced the meerkat encounter (additional cost) and it was fabulous. Our zoo-keeper Dani (hopefully spelt right)) was extremely knowledgeable, caring and professional - a real asset to the establishment. Finally, an excellent gift shop selling crocodile products and a good selection of food at the cafeteria. I must commend all staff in all areas for truely providing an interesting and informative day.

Very informative and helpful staff.

The staff were very helpful, and informative. The animal displays were great and wonderful to see the animals had ample room to relax ( and away from the glare of us humans, if they wish). I do wish the museum had better lighting, as some displays were too dark to see. The crocs were amazing.

Take a walk on the prehistoric side...

We really enjoyed our visit to Crocodylus Park. All of the staff were friendly, informative and helpful.
Upon entry, our first encounter was with a galah that insisted on a neck rub, repeatedly voicing 'come on' and placing his neck in reach.
They have some very large crocodiles. Their size, hearing the power of their jaw close, and noting how they can stealthily disappear from sight and then reappear, speeding through the water simply commands respect.
Highly recommend the boat cruise and watching them raise themselves out of the water to gain food. It's quite something!
Arrive early to book yourself on to a cruise.
Reptiles, monkeys, Australian fauna and a museum are included in your entry.
Well worth visiting.

Darwin can do better
May 2021 • Couples
The first thing you see when you walk in to the park are crocodile handbags and signs advertising that the park sells croc meat.

We had chosen to come here instead of the other croc centre in Darwin, thinking this was more a sanctuary/research centre and better for the animals, but this was not the impression we got when travelling around the park. The enclosures looked way too small (especially the breeding enclosures). Many of the animals, especially the meerkats, looked stressed and were pacing their enclosures.

The non-native animal enclosures looked small and tired. The only redeeming thing from our visit was the museum which we found very educational.

I’d like to know what the crocodiles that are being bred in their breeding program are being used for and what conservation efforts are being made for the non native animals at the park. I could find no information for any of this on the website, only that the crocodiles are being used for research and that their behaviours are monitored.
